I’m not sure if my photo looks very appetizing for this recipe but I assure you that these were pretty yummy. I had meant to add in black olives (because I love them) but forgot when I was gathering everything, so I made them without the olives. I really think that black olives would have been wonderful in these enchiladas. As I sit here thinking, I bet that some jalapenos cooked into the sirloin would be good too and give it a little kick. Of course, you could also add a hot salsa which would do the same (my salsa is mild).
A few hours prior to preparing these, I made Fresh Tomato Salsa and Guacamole to serve with them. The salsa went into the recipe. I dipped chips into my guac but my husband smeared it on the top of the enchiladas, either way, they were great.
